runtime: 120

Crime/ Drama The swan song of the great Simone Signoret - she lived another three years but never made another movie - teams her with the equally great Noiret in a script by yet another great, Jean Aurenche, adapted from a Simenon novel. If you like period detail (30s) strong atmosphere and top-drawer emoting then what are you waiting for. The bizarre melange of Eygpt and Belgium make for a sort of Turkish Delight of an movie. Gorge! Enjoy
